I am a fifth grade teacher. I have a wonderful group of students! They are constantly impressing me with their hard-working attitude, amazing work ethic, and overall positive outlook on life. I am so proud to be their teacher. They deserve the best education possible.
I teach at a rural, Title I school, serving approximately 300 students.
Every child receives free breakfast and lunch. We are located near a large military base, and as a result, serve children of active duty and retired military. Our students are bright and eager to learn new things. They are hard workers and strive to make their world a better place.
This project will make a difference in my 5th grade Literacy Collaborative classroom. The literature pieces that I have chosen, will continue to broaden my student's growing curiosity and my classroom library. Having a variety of literature for my students to choose from, creates a buzz about reading in my classroom. I am in need of more literature pieces for my students, since my classroom library is currently limited. Having more choice of reading materials, will enable more students to feel like they have more freedom with their selections! Vocabulary continues to be an area that my students need growth in.
These additions will continue to encourage my voracious readers to become life long lovers of reading!
I was very fortunate to have grown up in classrooms that had extensive classroom libraries, stocked lovingly, by dedicated teachers. I would love if my students got to experience that same opportunity. By supporting this project, you will be supporting students who love to read and encourage this love to grow and continue!
